AVA-LIT was created by Dahyna Mayeva Prophete Trecile. A writer, Social Worker and Social Media Influencer. In July 2021, Dahyna attempted to commit suicide due to her mental health. Can you imagine, former ABA therapist, current social worker not being able to "fix" herself? Yes. Our founder was experiencing severe depression and anxiety. She was found by her brother and his wife at her apartment in Woodland Hills. They rushed her to the ER then she was hospitalized.
Dahyna Always had an immense love for candles but never ever thought she would be able to follow her dreams. After months of experiencing, challenges, and frustration, she decided to build a legacy. Our founder cares about the environment which is why she made sure that every single thing she uses are eco-friendly and cruelty-free.
As mental health is her priority, Dahyna researched and surveyed her followers to learn more about songs, colors and scents that calm them down. With that being said , AVA-LIT is centered around mental health. Dahyna M. Trecile came up with the concept you-conscious for people like her, like you, like me who are in need of a way to escape, recharge and just breathe. We often forget to stay still, take it all in and just be. Finding time to care for our mental health, in a world full of chaos, is becoming harder every single day. AVA-LIT was created to turn your house into a home of light, relaxation and just vibes. AVA-LIT aims to bring you peace, calmness and stillness.
AVA-LIT will donate 15% of each sale of the AVA-LIT Concrete Candles to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the foremost non-profit organization in the country that is solely committed to understanding and preventing suicide via research, advocacy, and education while also supporting those who have been affected by suicide.
We believe in the power of words and thoughts. The way you think about yourself and what you tell yourself is extremely crucial to your mental health. What you visually consume also affects your mental health.
AT AVA-LIT, we choose our colors carefully. Some hues are soothing, while others are energizing. Color can be a powerful tool for making your house less stressful and more relaxing, as well as affecting your mood and well-being.
We did a lot of research and surveys analyzing colors that are healing and calming to your souls, minds and bodies. Color therapy or Chromotherapy has been used over the years to cure stress and anxiety. We use colors that are not only aesthetically pleasing but colors that feed your mind positively and release stress and anxiety.

KEEPING IT LIT
Our candles are cruelty-free, non-toxic and contain no lead, plastics, Paraben, phthalates or synthetic dyes.
AVA-LIT candles and melts are hand-poured with soy and/or coconut wax.
When compared to other forms of wax, coconut wax candles burn the cleanest and the slowest. Soy wax is a natural, renewable resource.
The flame of a candle soothes our soul, lowering stress and promoting self-awareness.
At AVA-LIT, we make our candles with premium wooden wicks and braided cotton wicks.
Wooden and cotton wicks are environmentally friendly. Our wooden wicks have a comparable crackling sound to a fireplace and burn evenly and cleanly. The cotton wicks burn with a tighter controlled flame, which ensures that pillars candles don’t tunnel.
